of data. >> it really is. anger at washington, the message this white house received out of massachusetts was that look, even in blue massachusetts, there's anger at how washington works. and if you look at our poll, what seems to be one way to interpret the poll is this. the public's not yet blaming barack obama for being part of the washington mess. however, they could start blaming him if he doesn't do what they believe they elected him to do which is to come here and change how this place works. they don't -- they are not confident yet that he's the right set of goals and policies. they have issues with him on the policy front. it doesn't seem he's doing enough. that sort of message. that's one of the things that this white house agrees with the public. they know that perceptionwise, doesn't like like they focus on the issue americans care about, jobs. doesn't look like there has been enough of change. it looks like they played within the system when the public thinks the system is broken. >> kelly o'don't the same message clearly that democrats and republicans are hearing on capitol
